Had a great time at The Capitol Hotel Sydney! The staff was so helpful and accommodating - just made the experience that much more enjoyable. Location is amazing - easy to walk to everything in the CBD and even to the Bridge & Opera House.

Great location.
The hotel is perfect for access to the Capitol Theatre, and parking. Chinatown is a 5 minute walk, and there are tram stops very nearby. Our room was small but very comfortable, clean, quiet and tastefully decorated in a modern style. The bathroom was spacious enough but the hot water took forever to come through, and was at a very low pressure. It barely dribbled from the tap and shower head. Breakfast was OK, but there didn't seem to be enough staff, or they are not well organised. There was little food available when we came in, and it took numerous requests for bread, milk sugar etc to be replenished. Hopefully the above complaints are not normal, or will be rectified soon. The staff were very pleasant.

All around great experience if u are going to a show at the Capitol theatre. Close to China town. Lots of eateries. Light rail. Parking onsite, very tight spaces but only $30 for overnight.

Excellent hotel, excellent location
Excellent location, in the heart of Haymarket. Check-in was quick and easy. Room was quite comfortable. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was clean and modern. Smart TV in the room, no free to air channels, but you can cast your phone/laptop/tablet to the in-built chromecast fairly easily. Breakfast has just been introduced as part of the hotel services, but we didn't avail of it so no comment on it. A couple of negatives about the hotel. Water pressure is abysmal (we were on the 5th floor). Housekeeping is a bit hit and miss - floors were not vacuumed at all during our stay, toilet not cleaned properly a couple of times. As has been mentioned by previous reviewers, there is only 1 lift in the building, which can make using it a bit slow (staff also use the same lift which can make it awkward at times) Overall, we were very satisfied with the hotel. Staff were always courteous and helpful, room was quiet, location is excellent.

8/10 Very good

Hotel location is great. Staff were very friendly and helpful. My only complaints are relatively minor. For a 2 night stay I do not expect or require cleaning. I put the do not disturb sign on the door, but returned to find my room made up. The TV is set up for casting from your device but would either not connect or would lag or buffer. Not a major issue, but when traveling with kids can be a real problem. Lots of pillows but all were very full and thick, not ideal for people who prefer a thinner or softer pillow. Overall a good short stay that allowed us access to everything we wanted to see in the city.
